Areas of Expertise
There are actually two areas. Borrowers with challenges and borrowers with advanced incomes and assets.
Here's why. When I first got in the business I concentrated on challenged borrowers because I figured they would excuse my lack of experience. I was right. Then, about 7 years ago I reinvented myself to serve borrowers with great credit and higher networths. So the advantage is I completely understand both sides. For any real estate agent it makes it "one stop" shopping regardless of the type of client.
The other thing I do is make you, the real estate agent, look really good. I do this with a system of updates, faxes, calls, gifts, and emails that make all parties to the transaction thrilled. Bottom line for the agent is thrilled clients, increased reputation and more referrals. Not to mention that you'll make more money just on the tough deals I'll put together.

Attorney Reveals: "You Showed Me How To Raise My Credit Score 77 Points!"
Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with all you've done. I still can't believe you showed me how to raise my credit score 77 points! And as you know, that allowed me to finance 100% my home at the best interest rates in the land. Your advice and "insider money and credit secrets" are invaluable. I see a lot in my legal practice, and I didn't know people with your connections and knowledge existed. Thank you Dan so much for all that you have done!
You are awesome and I will DEFINITELY refer anyone I know to you in the future!
"I really appreciate your knowledge and professionalism. Thank you for being so helpful to my clients now and in the future! "I'm proud to have you in my corner! You've been very helpful and I like helping people find their homes and I believe you sincerely like helping people secure their financial needs as well."
Pharmacist Speaks Out! "I Still Can't Believe You Saved Me $1,309.00 Per Month And I'll Be Debt Free In 10.3 Years!"
As a pharmacist and a single mom raising two boys, I'm so busy I can barely breath. You blew my mind when you showed me how "going against conventional wisdom" I could save $1,309 per month and still be debt free in 10.3 years! Most other lenders would have taken the easy way out, but you really took a financial planning approach and showed me the quickest way out of debt. Thank you. As you know this is the 3rd loan I've done with you and I'm so glad I can always count on you to show me the best financial way. On top of all that you made this entire loan painless, professional and easy. With my busy life, this was a Godsend.

"First Time Home Dreams Almost Destroyed!"
"We were with another mortgage company ... Then we were referred to Dan Dowling. What a breath of fresh air! They returned our calls, kept us updated, everything. Not only were his closing costs less, his interest rate was much less, and that made our mortgage payment with Dan $242 less per month! We were so happy because right before closing we found out we're having a baby! We'll need that money Dan saved us. Plus...the other company said my husband couldn't be on the loan! We were not happy about this. Not only did Dan put my husband on the loan, but he was first! We were so happy because we wanted him to build credit from the new mortgage. Well thanks to Dan, he is building credit and we're saving $242 a month ($5808 in the first 2 years alone) and we got into our new home!... It is great that there is a company you can trust and rely on and not just in it for the money they really care."
